Whalesongs

Because several people asked… The whale has his right flipper under his left armpit (flipperpit?) and is making those noises that six-year-old boys are so fond of.

 If you accept the premise that a whale would do this because he thinks it would be funny, then you have to accept alternate laws of physics that would make this possible.

  1. Comic laws of physics have always deviated from that of our world. It’s much the same with cartoon laws of physics, I suppose. That said, the flipper and flipperpit may not make the same sound it does when a six year old does it, but I bet it would make some sort of sound. The sound I imagined while reading the comic was like a whale sound through a cardboard tube if you can imagine that.

  2. Despite all the whale’s frantic movement, he’s only managed to produce a single eighth note — not much of a “song,” really. He seems more than pleased with the results, though.

  3. That’s funny, I didn’t notice the flipper-pit action. I was going to send it in because it reminded me of Gary Larson’s Far Side where the whale is singing Louie-Louie.

  4. Or the Far Side where the gorilla was doing the same thing instead of banging his chest
